Barahona city isn't an especially pleasant place. Founded in 1802, the city has fallen on hard times due to the local sugar mill closing. Still, the locals are friendly and the city does have a couple of good hotels, making it a useful base to explore the undeveloped coastline that stretches to the west of the city. If you decide to stick around, head to the Malecón, which is quite beautiful, or the parque central, a major hangout at night.
